Over 40 years of feeding the community. The diversity of the food here is absolutely amazing from Scratch sodas to bread to green beans to peaches to pork to mint tea to tomatoes to Coffee to mushrooms to grass-fed beef to homemade noodles to chicken to eggs to an all gluten free bakery. although only a couple Farmers are organic it is all local and you can talk to the person who grows it. If you are a people Watcher this is the place to be on Saturday mornings as there's a huge crowd
This is probably one of the better farmer's markets in the area. Other local cities nearby have them but they don't come close in size or variety of vendors. You can find everything from produce, meats, baked goods, made to order coffee, and even live music. It's dog friendly as well.
Fun place. Great produce. It's great to wander around to all the different vendors and buy local.
My favorite spot on Saturday morning. Great produce, meat, and decorative items.
